End of Life and GDPR

If you're reading the community site these days, you certainly noticed that not a single piece of significant content was created since 2015, and not much since 2013.

Whatever this may mean for PHP-GTK itself is another issue, but for the site itself, it means it ceased to be relevant about 5 years ago, and it's time to move on for the site members. Since the site contains non-anonymous user, it will fall under the new EU GDPR regulations entering into force on 2018-05-25, and there is no point for me to spend time on evolving the site towards compliance when no one is actually using it.

So here is the EOL announcement: the site will be shutting down on 2018-05-24 and its data will taken offline.

A static version of the articles may be published again at some point here or elsewhere, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it. So if you have even some interest in the site content, be sure to copy/paste the pages of interest before it goes dark on 2018-05-24. Or contact me if you want a copy of the files and content, or check my blog for newer content.

Thanks all for participating, it's been a pleasure while it lasted.

Glade 3 (3.4.1) Build for Windows (Installer Included)

Glade 3 running on LinuxRecently I have had the obligation to develop desktop applications for Windows platforms in a fast and practical, to make this happens I decided to use Glade.

The only problem is that I've been using Linux for over 4 years and 2 years since I have not developed anything under/for Windows, but nothing is forever and this time is no an exception.

At first, I searched a lot through the internet looking for something already done, in my search I found a few projects, but none that were not updated to run in an acceptable manner, at the end I lost too much time, so I decided to take control of things and make my own compilation of gtk + libraries for Windows and finally achieve the power to run Glade properly.

After a few days (1 and an half, actually) trying to run my favorite software for the design of graphical user interfaces (Glade) under Windows, I finally succeeded.

This was my result.

So I've decided to create an installation script and publish it for anyone who needs Glade on Windows... you can get in an easy way, just a click away.


Finally after few weeks... I did it!

Thanks to Elizabeth Marie Smith ( I finally got it... I got GTKBuilder support!! :D

php-gtk installation for GTKBuilder support... failed

Well, after few weeks trying to find some really good information about how to install php-gtk with GTKBuilder support I'm just tired. I can't find anywhere nothing about INSTALL php-gtk with full extra support... when you try to ask on #php-gtk its like talk with yourself, anybody responds your question... its a really good site, but I just find 2 links about GTKBuilder...

My strong language is spanish... y no existe documentacion alguna acerca de instalar php-gtk. This is really bad...

I think I must conform with installing Glade 2...
